(AP) The Rally of Germany was halted Saturday following the death of a driver and co-driver in another unrelated event.


Race organizers say a Dutch duo died after their vintage car crashed off the track in a demonstration event not connected to the championship. No other people were involved in the accident. The identities of the men were not released.


The last three of Saturday's stages were cancelled, with the rally to continue as per the original schedule on Sunday.


Dani Sordo of Spain was leading in his Citroen after 13 stages, 0.8 seconds ahead of Belgium's Thierry Neuville in a Ford Fiesta.


Mikko Hirvonen of Finland was third in another Citroen, 1 minute 27.6 seconds behind Sordo, who trails championship leader Sebastien Ogier by 112 points in the overall standings.
